Kim Kardashian is apparently considering quitting Instagram over its new terms of service policy, despite the fact that the company has stepped forward and said it won’t sell your photos. The “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star is currently the application’s top user.
According to TMZ, Kardashian isn’t convinced by Instagram’s defense of the new policy and “is telling friends she’s thinking about shutting down her Instagram account, going to a rival photo-posting company … and taking ALL OF HER FOLLOWERS WITH HER.” She currently has over 5.7 million Instagram followers. In addition, her family members including Khloe, Rob, Kendall and Kylie are also among the site’s top 10 most followed users.
For the record, here’s the clarification that Instagram co-founder Kevin Systrom wrote earlier this week: “Instagram users own their content and Instagram does not claim any ownership rights over your photos. Nothing about this has changed. We respect that there are creative artists and hobbyists alike that pour their heart into creating beautiful photos, and we respect that your photos are your photos. Period. I always want you to feel comfortable sharing your photos on Instagram and we will always work hard to foster and respect our community and go out of our way to support its rights.”
